What's the meaning of...

Saturday, June 14, 2014

My daughter is now in big school. Yay! She is in Kinder 2 and Mommy is so excited! Can't wait for Monday the first day of school. Everything needed on the school list is ready. I can't help na magtaas ng kilay sa ibang items pero sige....buy na din. Some of these are two rolls of toilet paper, a box of tissue, liquid soap....etc. The emergency kit, they call it "grab kit" I understand. The others....sige na lang.

Before I get totally off track, I wrote this post because Via has been asking the meaning of words she comes across while reading or watching videos. It's great that she's curious but sometimes I really run out of answers. Words that I took for granted were a challenge to define using small words kids understand.

awkward
confident
destiny
distance
horrid

Lately, she took to watching magic's greatest secrets on YouTube and she started asking the meaning of words like
red carpet
choreography
bendable babe (yikes!)

So what words have your children asked you to define?

Goodbye Preschool! Hello Big School!

Thursday, June 5, 2014

I always thought I would be proud of whatever my little girl accomplishes but I was surprised at the rush of pride that I felt when I read the email from her school.

"Congratulations! Just to let you know that Via has been chosen to do the speech for the graduation....."

Suddenly I'm oblivious to everything but the feeling of bursting pride. There are no awards given out at Via's preschool. The school follows the concept of all kids are special in their own ways. Instead, students who have performed well or excelled are given special roles during graduation. There are four special roles: two students for the leading roles in the musical production, one student to do the Invocation and one student to make the graduation speech.


Congratulations Via! Mommy and Daddy are so very proud of you!

Via has also been accepted at our chosen big school. It was all or nothing because we haven't applied anywhere else. So on to the next chapter!
